    Prosecutor Hilson:
    “Besides being a sick individual, I don’t know. I don’t know what his motive was,”
    Willis also faces four felony counts of using a computer to commit a crime and four felony counts of child sexually abusive activity for incidences authorities uncovered during the investigation. The charges are tied to evidence found on a hard drive at his home, court documents revealed.

    The missing and murdered cannot cry out for Justice. It is the duty for the living to do so for them.

    Hilson said he and the Bletsch family consider the teen who escaped Willis a "hero" and say her actions set these latest findings into motion.

    Same link as above.

    Thanks for making this. I didn't wanna clog up the thread dedicated to Jessica with posts about this guy, but it seems there's a lot worth talking about.

    Profiler sees predator traits in Muskegon suspect - May 25

    Retired Central Michigan University Sexual Aggression Services Director Steve Thompson studies and profiles sexual predators. He says the box with handcuffs, a gag, gloves, a rope and restraints police say they found in the van Willis was driving suggests he was prepared to take a prisoner. And if that is true, Thompson says the teenager probably wasn’t his first. It would just be the first time he was caught.

    "The thing that struck me is he is fairly old to have just begun this kind of crime," explains Thompson. "I suspected this wasn’t this person’s first time, because it’s rare to start doing something like this at age 46."

    Task Force Hunts Possible Serial Killer of 11 Women - November 10, 1996

    Just browsing about unsolved crimes in the area and came across this. Willis would have been in his early/mid-20s. Any thoughts?

    The first victim, Lesa Otberg, 25, of Grand Rapids, was discovered in March 1994 in nearby Muskegon. Eight months later, another body, still unidentified, was found in neighboring Ottawa County.

    The others have been in the Grand Rapids area, including four in October. The latest was Victoria Moore, 29, whose decomposed body was spotted by a squirrel hunter two weeks ago 20 miles north of the city.

    "I'd be really surprised if it wasn't a serial killer," Dalecke said. "It's too much to be a coincidence."

    Hmm, interesting. I live in Grand Rapids and at first couldn't recall these murders but it came back to me when I read your link and saw "prostitutes". I have a vague memory of an arrest associated with that slew of killings but don't know if anything came of it.

    This guy, Willis, has to have killed before. I agree with the profiler. That doesn't seem like rocket science, either. You don't just start driving around with a serial killer kit in the van in your forties and he probably acquired his preferred objects out of experience. It was 20 years ago he was fired for viewing porn on school computers so he was a freak at least that long ago. Obviously, a guy who has done what we know he's done (the 16 year old and Rebekah Bletch) had to be deranged since he was very young (or even born). He's lived his life in the area, so every unsolved female murder around here from the time he was a teenager on should be looked at.

    It seems like Muskegon county may have been is comfort zone, as all three known victims weren't that far away from his home. I hope LE is looking into other cases in that general area, and other areas he may have lived in/visited in the past. It'd be nice to know what the teenage victim looked like, to see if Willis preferred any particular type of victim. Heeringa/Beltsch doesn't look too similar so I wonder if it he would've taken any female that came across his path.

    Here's a link with information on Jeffrey Willis.

    It gives his current and past addresses. From Jul 1993 - Jul 1996 he lived at 4754 Heights Ravenna Rd, Fruitport, MI 49415, but it doesn't say where he was living in October of 1996.

    He seems to commit his crimes in a small area near where he lives. Wonder if he spent any time in Ohio :
